Marilyn Manson huge fan of Greggs’ cheese and onion pasties – Tabloid Hell

Shock rocker pays tribute to 'good old-fashioned fare'

Marilyn Manson has revealed an unexpected soft spot for a traditional British food favourite – pasties from Greggs the baker.

The shock rocker told The Sun he pays the high street food outlet a visit whenever he’s in London – and favours their cheese and onion-flavoured pastry treats.

Manson‘s love of pasties apparently dates back to his 2007 ‘Rape Of The World’ UK tour.

The singer commented: “What’s that place in good old England? The bakers? Greggs, that’s right Greggs. They do the best pasties there.

“The cheese and onion is great – good old-fashioned fare.”

Manson is no stranger to the world of high-class food and drink – he launched Mansinthe, his own brand of absinth, in 2008.

However, the alcoholic beverage was panned by gourmet food website Epicurious.com, which compared it with sewage water and swamp mud.
